Authors: Marinovich ML, Macaskill P, Bernardi D, Houssami N Abstract Introduction Tomosynthesis is proposed to improve breast cancer assessment and staging as a complementary role to its detection capability. We examine the accuracy of tomosynthesis in measuring tumor size relative to pathology and compared with other tests. Areas covered A systematic literature search identified studies of tomosynthesis in estimating the size of newly-diagnosed breast cancers. Descriptive analyses were performed due to heterogeneity in patients, technology and methods between studies. Eight studies were eligible (678 patients). Me...

The Cancer Expert Working Group on Cancer Prevention and Screening (CEWG) was set up in 2002 by the Cancer Coordinating Committee to review and assess local and international scientific evidence, and to formulate recommendations for cancer prevention and screening. After considering the local epidemiology, emerging scientific ...

Conclusions: Low-dose vaginal estrogen use for 1 or more years in a small cohort of women with GSM did not appear to be associated with any changes in breast density or Bi-RADS breast cancer risk scores in the majority of study participants, including three breast cancer survivors. Larger long-term controlled clinical trials should be conducted to examine the effects of low-dose vaginal estrogen on mammographic density in women with and without a personal history of breast cancer. Furthermore, relative efficacy and risk of vaginal estrogen compared with other forms of treatment for GSM should also be studied in long-term trials.

A new  studyhas found that false positive breast cancer biopsies are costing healthcare facilities over $2.1 billion annually. This high false positive rate and the consequential expenses highlight the need for improved breast cancer diagnostic protocols and technology.Researchers from IBM Watson Health and Seno Medical looked at health care claims filed between 2011 and 2015 from 875,000 women to understand the rate of follow-up procedures after mammography and breast exams. They found that between 2012 and 2015, 8,732,909 patients received diagnostic mammograms, 6,987,399 underwent breast ultrasounds, and 1,585,856 ...

Patients are more  likelyto show up to an imaging appointment when it ’s scheduled within a week than when it’s planned at least six months in advance. Academic radiology units are losing approximately $1 million a year to patients missing medical imaging appointments. According to researchers from the University of Washington, the fees lost to no-shows amount to the purchase of one new 3T MR scanner every year.In their study published inCurrent Problems in Diagnostic Radiology, the group of researchers led by Rebecca J. Mieloszyk, PhD, evaluated a sample “average-sized, university-affiliated academi...
